DJ Danger Mouse is one of those guys that everyone knows but don’t know they know. He’s produced albums for The Gorillaz, Beck, he’s half of the Gnarls Barkley project and he’s been tapped by a bunch of musicians for a dose of hipness. He’s like The Timbaland of non-shitty music.
A couple years ago, he got his ass into a sling by releasing a mashup called the Gray album, which took The Beatles’ White Album and Jay-Z’s Black Album and stuck them in a blender. EMI wasn’t very impressed and sued the shit out of him. Since then, he’s popped up in the news ticker for continuing to piss off entities protected under the RIAA’s umbrella.
